Ireland Census Search Forms, 1841 and 1851
Irish Census Search forms 1841 & 1851. The government used these forms to search the 1841 & 1851 Census to prove the age of people applying for the Old Age Pension when birth certificates did not exist because the person was born before Civil Registration had begun. The census search forms contain the applicant's name, address, residence in 1851 with county, barony, parish, townland and street as well as the parent's names and head of household in 1851. This collection was originally captured at the National Archives of Ireland and the index was created by FindMyPast.com.
